Washington: US President Donald Trump has appointed Indian-American Raj Shah to a key position in his communications team, the White House said.
“Raj Shah will serve as Deputy Assistant to the President and Principal Deputy Press Secretary,” the White House said in a statement.
Shah formerly served as Deputy Assistant to the President and Deputy Communications Director.
Shah, 32, was one of the few handful of Trump’s aides who landed in the White House within hours of him being sworn in as the 45th President of the United States on January 20.
In April, he was identified as one of the three West Wing Power Player in the White House along with Hope Hicks and Eli Miller.
Shah was Director of Opposition Research in the Republican National Committee before moving to the White House.
